Tamiya 1/48 F-6D “Nose Art Group Build”

My first off the bench for 2019 is Tamiya's old P-51D completed as an F-6D Recce bird from the 10th Photo Reconnaissance Group. This aircraft was flown by Lt. John R. "Red" Ellis, who obviously was from the great state of Kentucky. The art work [...]

My first post: P51 D Mustang

Hi guys. My name is Jordyn Collier. I am new to this site, and I am 15. This P51 D Mustang was flown by Col. John D Landers during the second world war. He was a part of the 84th Fighter Squadron, and he received 36.5 confirmed kills, 14.5 of wh[...]

P-51 D Update #2

Well it has been a while but here is the second update to the P-51. I decided to go with the blue nosed one. The paint is just Tamiya flat aluminum. I also put the American star decals on because I'm going to put a wash on them to make them l[...]

1:48 Meng P-51D “Da Quake”

This is Meng’s most excellent 1:48 P-51D. I’m sure most of you have read how it is possible (but not quite) to build this kit without glue. It’s true, but believe me, this is no beginner’s model. Nor is it a bang it out build. Fun? Absolutely! [...]

Airfix 1/24 P-51D Mustang

This is fourth of these that I have built (1 still in stash, lol). I made first kit when I was 11 or 12. I actually painted it white. I thought the instruction book looked white, lol. I gave up on Trumpeter 1/24. I wish I would have waited for m[...]

On This Day…January 4th
